Nisg̱a’a Lisims Government and Indigenous Tourism BC Embark on Partnership

Today, in the Nisga’a Village of Gitlax̱t’aamiks, Eva Clayton President of the Nisga’a Lisims Government (NLG) and Tracy Eyssens, CEO of Indigenous Tourism BC (ITBC), announce the signing of a Statement of Collaboration that outlines the intention of the NLG and ITBC to collaborate on initiatives that support the development of Indigenous tourism experiences in the Nass Valley and the four Nisga’a Villages of Ging̱olx, Lax̱g̱alts’ap Gitwinksihlkw and Gitlax̱t’aamkis while recognizing the Nisg̱a’a Nation’s shared interest and values.

This unique agreement will allow NLG and ITBC to collaborate on:

  1. Building strong market-ready tourism businesses that deliver world-class cultural experiences to the visitors visiting the Nass Valley.

This Statement of Collaboration carves a path for ITBC and the development of many more collaboration agreements to be developed with a number of First Nations throughout British Columbia.
